AccuWeather's 2018-2019 United Kingdom winter forecast

The upcoming winter will bring a battering to the United Kingdom, as an active windstorm season is on the cards.

Wet weather experienced during autumn will continue across the U.K. in the coming months as storms from the Atlantic bring the risk for damaging winds, flooding and travel disruption.

The official windstorm season got off to a fast start, with back-to-back named storms Ali and Bronagh in late September followed by a third, Storm Callum, on 10 October.

The second half of the season â€" including January and February â€" is predicted to be even busier, with Northern Ireland, southwestern Scotland, northwestern England and Wales most likely to be hit.

AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys said: “If we get a series of storms to come through, exposed beaches could see a lot of erosion from coastal flooding.

“This includes Cardiff, Manchester, Belfast, Glasgow.”

While these storms will produce less-than-desirable weather at times, they may have a silver lining.

“[Storms from the Atlantic] typically bring mild weather to much of England,” Roys said.

Overall, the winter is forecast to end up being as much as 1 degree Celsius above normal.

According to Roys, Britons do not need to prepare for another Beast from the East nor blizzard-like conditions during the 2018-2019 winter season.

Snow may fall at times, though it will most often be confined to typical locations, such as the Scottish Highlands and the higher terrain of northern England and Northern Ireland.

Elsewhere, rain is forecast to be the more frequent form of precipitation.

Unlike last year, prolonged dry periods are not anticipated so regions which are coping with drought conditions, such as southern England, may recover.
